A Rough Furlough? What’s a Rough Furlough?

Where are you going to little brown Mouse?
“Nowhere, I can’t. I’m not allowed out the house.”
But that’s not a problem – all will be fine
You can order all products from us now online.
Oh Mouse, oh no – didn’t you know?
There’s no such thing as a rough furlough.

Owl is the wise one, followed the rules from the start.
Like being safe, staying alert and two metres apart.
Our doors are now open and we’ve made a few changes.
Like hand cleaning stations and marked out all our ranges.
Oh Owl – so clever, you were bound to know.
There’s no such thing as a rough furlough.

There may be a queue, you might wait ’till you enter.
Is there anything better than a well stocked garden centre?
This story you may know by Donaldson, Jue.
We hope you all like it and she will not sue.

Snake made a visit – he followed the rules.
He bought some new plants and a new range of tools.
Oh Snake clearly he did know.
There’s no such thing as a rough furlough.

There’s plants, compost, furniture, containers and pots.
In fact everything you’ve dreamed of – and we’ve got lots and lots.
Just not the Restaurant – that’s not open yet.
It’s all for your garden, for you and your pet.

Fox is so cunning – the garden is good for the mind.
So he’s planted some veggies, been on Zoom and been kind.
Oh Fox for sure he did know.
There’s no such thing as a rough furlough.

Checking your eyesight? No need for a castle.
There’s plenty to see here, without all the hassle.
We haven’t seen many of you for a good while.
But we are better than ever – service with a smile.

So if you’re like Mouse, Owl, Snake or Fox.
We are here to help – it’s us Whilton Locks.
Why didn’t you know?
There’s no such thing as rough furlough.
